Why Dennis Eagle Trucks?

Trucks Made Specifically for the Refuse Market

In 2009, a development project commenced with Dennis Eagle in the UK to bring the Elite 2 chassis to New Zealand. This comprehensive project involved a global engineering effort that included engineers from Australia, the United Kingdom, and North America. The project team focused on integrating leading European and North American technology with the proven advantages of the Dennis Eagle chassis and tailored the final product specifically to the service requirements of the New Zealand market.

One of the Safest Choices on the Market

A key characteristic of the Dennis Eagle range is the integration of excellent safety features such as one-step entry and exit cabs, tall and wide door openings, true flat floors, large glass areas for maximum visibility, well-positioned grab handles, and an adaptable mirror package. These all contribute to Dennis Eagle being one of the safest choices on the market.

The Elite 2 is a state-of-the-art vehicle developed specifically to meet the demanding requirements of the waste collection market.

With a 5-star direct vision standard (DVS) rating as recognised by Transport for London, the Elite 2 chassis sets the benchmark in safety and visibility, featuring outstanding safety characteristics including a one-step entry and exit cab. Coupled with tall and wide door openings and large well-positioned grab handles, the vehicle provides operators with one of the easiest and safest ingress and egress points of any vehicle in its class. Furthermore, the flat floor and stand up height across the full width of the cab allows operators to safely enter and exit the vehicle from the kerbside – avoiding risky traffic side entry and exits – a further plus for operator safety. The cab is fully ECE R29 certified and is manufactured out of Cromweld stainless steel, ensuring a high degree of corrosion resistance and safety.

With large glass areas for outstanding visibility and a complete state-of-the-art mirror package, the Elite 2 is designed to optimise the productivity of your operations and keep drivers safe and comfortable.
